Emerson, 26, joined Chelsea in 2018 from Serie A side AS Roma in a move which cost the club just £18m, as per Transfermarkt.

Since his arrival in London, Emerson has featured in just 62 matches in all competitions with just seven coming during the 2020-21 campaign.

Despite featuring in four of Chelsea’s Champions League matches this season, the 26-year-old has made just the one appearance in the Premier League.

According to his agent who recently spoke to FC Inter News, Frank Lampard is unwilling to allow his out-of-favour full-back depart in January on loan as the club would prefer to ‘monetise’ any proposed move.

“Emerson Palmieri to Inter on a free loan? Absolutely not. Chelsea eventually wants to monetize his sale. Not having liquidity is a problem”, explained the super-agent. “Some teams have already done some polls, but not I reveal which ones. How much does it cost? We haven’t talked about it.”

Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte who has history with the Blues having managed them from 2016-2018 will be keen to add to his impressive squad’s options.

The blue half of Milan currently sit second in the Serie A table, just one-point behind arch-rivals AC Milan and the club’s 51-year-old manager will be desperate to guide the Nerazzurri to their first league title since 2010.
